According to the Association, the prevailing socio-economic situation in Nigeria over the years has brought some level of frustration to the people. This could be as a result of the collapse of the communal extended family structures which Nigerians have been noted for over the decades as well as the dwindling economic situation in the country.

Instances of abuses, poverty, relationships went soar and academic frustration has also been identified as some of the factors leading to suicides in recent times.

The Association is of the opinion that religious leaders, as well as those in government circles, have shied away from their responsibilities to the people in this regard.

Some of the victims believed they had no other option than to terminate their lives.

The Guild of Professional Bloggers of Nigeria (GPBN) advocates that immediate attention should be drawn towards this increasing scourge.
